I hope I've put this in the correct area, if not please move accordingly.

I'm looking for any and all Photographs of the 19th Indiana. I've tried searching on here and have also tried searching on google etc and have so far come up with nothing. I do have a copy of "Iron Men, Iron Will", however most of the pictures in that are portraits. I would like to see pictures of the men on parade, in camp, anything really so I can have a better look at their equipment.

Living in Britain, I cant really go to any collections or anything so does anyone know of any online collections I might be able to access or a contact I could ask to send me some digital copies. Does anyone on here have some which they could e-mail over to me.

I really would like to be able to have a more detailed look at their kit and equipment if possible. There are a good number of us in our unit over here who are trying to achieve greater levels of accuracy and this would really help all of us out a great deal.

If none exist of the regiment as I am aware many pictures were lost and destroyed since the war, any pictures of Iron brigade regiments will do to start with.

I really hope someone can help with this.

Best Regards

Hi Alistair,

If you haven't already done so, you may want to directly contact Craig Dunn through his website. If Craig doesn't have the kinds of images you need, he almost certainly knows someone who does.

If you still can't make contact with him, send me a PM and I'll see if I can raise him. Craig lives only about an hour northeast of me here in Indiana.

Regards,

Thanks Mark,

I have contacted Mr Dunn with regard to this and am waiting for a reply. I hope he can help or recommend something. This has been driving me mad for a while. It can be quite frustrating at times living over here as we are some what limited (even with the internet) as to the sources we have at our disposal.

Anyway, we'll see what happens.

All the best!
